On Tuesday, Japan and Colombia will meet at the Yodoko Sakura Stadium. This could be a fun international friendly between the two exciting teams. Friday’s friendly match between Japan and Uruguay ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to a goal by Takuma Nishimura in the 75th minute.
In the 38th minute, Uruguay took the lead thanks to Federico Valverde’s goal. His underlying volley bounced back off the post yet Uruguay’s commander responded rapidly to swim his direction into the crate to gesture the ball home.
Kaoru Mitoma appeared to be the most likely to have an impact on the situation as Japan elicited a strong response. In the end, shortly after coming on as a substitute, Nishimura scored the much-needed equalizer.
Japan will be excited about their chances against Colombia, who are coming off a hard-fought draw. They have an exciting team. Child Heung-min’s first-half support for South Korea was counterbalanced by two early final part strikes from James Rodriguez and Jorge Carrascal as Colombia held their Asian resistance to a 2-2 draw.
The South Korean national team’s first game under Jurgen Klinsmann’s leadership was that one. Despite Colombia’s unbeaten record in their last four matches across all competitions, on Tuesday, they will face a talented Japanese team.
